Sherri's second place awards include the National Moot Court Competition, and the AAJ Regional Mock Trial Competition.

After graduating from law school, magna cum laude, Sherri was selected to be one of 16 advocates in the country to participate in the Top Gun individual advocate competition where she finished second and was named the Nation's second-best law student advocate of 2014.
